1st T20I: Bangladesh v Sri Lanka at Chittagong, Feb 12, 2014
Sri Lanka won by 2 runs
12 February 2014 - day/night match (20-over match)
6.1

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length ball outside leg stump, no turn. This is nudged around the corner to short-fine-leg

6.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, no run, floated up wide of off stump, Chandi chops down, but it's straight to point

6.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, 1 leg bye, slow again, Chandimal comes down the pitch and can't get anything more than pad to it

6.4

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length ball on the pads, clipped square, thought of a second, but it's not there

6.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, OUT, he hadn't played a decent shot after I talked him up, and he now perishes, holing out to long off. Chandimal ran down the pitch and tried to smash it for six, but he didn't have enough power in the shot. Fielder at long on leaps and takes it just inside the ropes.

LD Chandimal c Farhad Reza b Shakib Al Hasan 18 (24m 15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

6.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, 1 run, slow again, pitched on middle, straightening. Sanga goes back and pushes it wide of midwicket

Sri Lanka 62/2   Shakib Al Hasan 1-0-3-1
8.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, OUT, oh what a catch! It takes something special to dismiss Sanga at this ground, and Nasir Hossain provides just that. Sanga rocks back and plays that straight-ish pull that brought him about a billion runs in the Test match here. But this time, Shakib has got a man out there and Nasir sprints full tilt to his right about seven metres in from the fence, then throws himself to intercept the ball mid air.

KC Sangakkara c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 11 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 183.33

8.2

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, no run, fullish ball, hit back to the bowler

8.3

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length ball outside leg, shoveled away on the leg side again

8.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Prasanna, 1 run, length ball on the pads, Prasanna squirts this off the inside half of the bat on to the on side

8.5

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, 2 runs, lovely, delicate late-cut dissects the men behind square on the leg side. Not much power though, so it doesn't go to the fence

8.6

Shakib Al Hasan to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length ball on middle, worked away of the pads straight of midwicket again

Sri Lanka 82/3   Shakib Al Hasan 2-0-8-2
16.1

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 1 run, full, wide outside off. Perera reaches out and hauls it from way out there to mid on, where there's a gap

16.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, 1 run, floated up outside off stump, Kulasekara just prods this away and there's plenty of space in the offside infield

16.3

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 2 runs, bludgeons this one down the ground, and a misfield at long off allows two

16.4

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 1 run, arm ball on around middle, Kule clips it straight of midwicket and gets the single

16.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, 1 run, arm ball on around middle, Kule clips it straight of midwicket and gets the single

16.6

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 2 runs, this might be out! Thisara drills this down to long on a little two well, but for some reason, the batsmen try for a second. Kulasekara pulls the dive out, and it just saves him. If it had been a direct hit, he was out of here as well.

Sri Lanka 135/6   Shakib Al Hasan 3-0-16-2
18.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, 1 run, gets that to long on

18.2

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 1 run, slow outside off stump, and that's slogged, almost slog-swept to long on

18.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, SIX, that's a classic Kulasekara shot. Length ball and that's launched off one knee into the long-on stands

18.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, 1 run, fuller and wider of the off stump, hit aerially to deep point

18.5

Shakib Al Hasan to NLTC Perera, 1 run, pushed through slightly quicker. Perera can't get a hold of it, but still manages a single down to long on.

18.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, 1 run, length ball, but this is pushed through quickly. Heaved away to deep midwicket

Sri Lanka 156/6   Shakib Al Hasan 4-0-27-2
